  1. Beautiful photos, Cindy! I’m not much for boats, so I admire your courage at being on one, especially during a storm!! Safe travels, my friend!

  2. Awesome pics. As always. I look very forward to some of that, but on the Pacific when my husband and I take our Alaskan cruise trip aboard the Princess cruise line to Alaska with a land and sea pkg. It is our 50th w. anniversary then and we are booked and board the ship on the 16th of July. Very excited. Safe travels to you, Cindy, enjoy, where was it this time, Portugal and Spain? Exciting place, I’m sure.

      • We are still in The Sargasso Sea. It’s an ocean defined by the current surrounding it. In two days we will approach the current boundary off the coast of Africa where there is subtantial upwelling and generally a lot of whales, especially blue whales. This is our fourth crossing, our third over this part of the ocean. I saw a lot of whales including blues at the confluence before once! I am hoping to see some again this time. In the Sargasso itself, one sees little marine life, mistakenly leading people like Coleridge to refer to the sea as a desert. It is a very organically rich ocean, but the life is mostly below the water. I have seen pilot whales once in the middle of The Sargasso. The Sargasso fascinates me. It is named for living floating sargasso kelp that supports a whole ecosystem of minute marine life, including resting baby sea turtles.

  4. Las fotos de la travesía son preciosas. Supongo que ya te queda poco tiempo para estar entre nosotros (los habitantes de la Península Ibérica ;-)) Has elegido una buena época para disfrutar de nuestra luz, pero sin el agobiante calor del verano. Un abrazo Cindy y hasta pronto.

    • Gracias amiga mia!
      Voy a estar en Espana durante tres semanas. No hay tiempo suficiente. Es mi tercer viaje a Espana. Me gustaría poder permanecer un ano! Abrazos y besos!

      • A ver si tus deseos se cumplen y en otra ocasión vienes para más tiempo y así conocer a los amigos españoles. Supongo que tendrás un programa denso y espero que lo disfrutes. Besos <3

    • Thank you Vashti. It is like another world, yet it is our world, with no people. It always reminds me of Coleridge and his ancient mariner, adrift on the empty sea. It is so beautiful.

  6. Hi there Cindy. They were all good though the last one really jumped out, taking me by surprise. Was that your intent? Breathtaking colours and once again it made a big difference that you could click on it.

    • I am happy you enjoyed Andy! I do try to end with a good photo that stands out to reward people who bother to look at all the photos! So pleased you noticed and cheers to you my friend~

    • In sunny Portugal now Resa, took some street art photos that I can’t wait to share with you. Portugal has truly amazingly talented street artists~ <3

  7. All were astounding examples of forces in nature, Cindy. I don’t think I have seen such a living ocean or sky on fire, as these display! Wow! xo

    • The middle of The Sargasso Sea is one of the most lonely and yet most beautiful places on the planet. The sunsets rule the sea. Be well and cheers to you Robin~

    • My son got seasick in all the storms, but eventually overcame it, so you are right Brenda, it could be either! 😉 Cheers to you from sunny Portugal~ <3

      • I have a very excitable tummy. Storms would make me seasick, too.

        Cheers to you from rainy New England. My neighbor who moved here from Georgia remarked sourly that today was like November. LOL

      • Looking forward to all you pass on!! Are you going to Portugal first? We loved the Pasteis de Belem– a cafe that sells luscious cream tarts and has been open since 1837! by the Geronmios Monatery– I heard a story on that place on NPR last week and it made me wish I could sit down to a nice plate of them!! I’m sure you’ll find all kinds of wonderful things to sample! enjoy!

  9. Much belated thanks for taking and sharing your photographs. Type of vessel from which pictures taken? Mutinies, keel-hauling? Keep breathing deeply that great, fresh salty air and keep them thar pictures acomin’.
